Rumor: CBS sends out Grammys nudity ban email

Celebrities attending event warned to cover up "breasts, buttocks, genitals"

CONFIRMED: Standard and Practice 'wardrobe advisory' leaked online

The warning shot was sent to performers, presenters and audience members who will appear on camera at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, as leaked online by Deadline.

CBS' Standard and Practice department sent out the memo as a measure to help prevent celebrities from exposing themselves. In 2010, Lady Gaga appeared in a plastic outfit that revealed more than she intended, StyleList reported. At the 2012 Grammys, Justin Bieber's fly appeared to be open on the red carpet, according to E!

Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Katy Perry have been known to show up wearing very little, as well.

The advisory didn't stop at skin-bearing outfits, either.

Obscenity or partially visible obscenity on outfits is not acceptable. CBS also cautions celebrities against using their outfits as billboards for causes, Deadline said.

And the Grammy goes to President …

During the 55-year history of the Grammys, three presidents, all Democrats, have won the award. Bill Clinton was the first to win, in 2004, for his work in narrating the English version of "Wolf Track." He won again in 2005 for his autobiography, "My Life." President Obama also has two Grammys to his name: in 2006 for "Dreams of My Father" and 2008 for "The Audacity of Hope." Jimmy Carter won in 2007 for "Our Endangered Value: America's Moral Crisis." Carter also was nominated in 2008 for "Sunday Morning in Plains: Bringing Peace to a Changing World" but was beaten out by Obama.
